Mother Left ‘Shocked’ and ‘in Tears’ at School Awards Ceremony

Editor’s Note:

This story contains mature subject matter. Reader discretion is advised.

A Washington state parent is speaking out after she was left stunned by a school awards ceremony that she said featured profanity, inappropriate jokes and a box of sex toys.

The parent, who sent an email to KOMO-TV, but wished to remain anonymous, said she was left in tears by what she witnessed when she accompanied her 17-year-old daughter to the event put on by Bellingham High School drama teacher Teri Grimes.

“I sat there with my mouth open in shock and the final straw was when a joke was told on stage about a teacher, a lawyer and a priest on a plane,” the unidentified parentwrote to KOMO. “The plane was going down and the teacher says we have to save the children. The attorney says ‘F*** the children!’ and the priest says ‘OOOOH..Do we have time for that???’”

That’s when the parent says she left.

In her email to KOMO, she provided more details, saying vulgar language was used throughout the program and contended that some of the awards were inappropriate for children. One category she said was titled “the horniest stud,” and featured a box of sex toys as the prize. Another category was for the “horniest girl,”

I would remove my child, 17 or not, from that atmosphere and have them debriefed...the way a person rescued from a cult is un brainwashed. Then I would be sure to re train the morals of that daughter and point out the insanity of the teachers.
Disgusting behavior for people entrusted with teens...

This is the result of democrat rule aborting our taboo structure which made America a Great Nation, once upon a time. Make no mistake, the end of America as the Founders arranged it has been the agenda of those directing the democrap party for more than fifty years now. Evil saunters around America, unrecognized by the majority of the degenerate population. And by degenerate, I am referring to a society without a taboo structure to meld the people into a nation.

The stories about "hot" teachers seducing "lucky" young men are not happy stories.
The stories about balding middle-aged men having sex with under-age girls are not heart-warming.
And the homosexuals own the whole education system.

Many people see such institutions as vehicles to groom young sex partners.

Not saying the joke doesn’t have some hint of humor in it somewhere, but it has no place at all in an awards ceremony at a school.

I mean wtf...lunacy.

“Well, I’m Catholic, but I still laughed at that joke.”

OK, It’s a funny, if dirty, joke. But it is COMPLETELY inappropriate to tell such a joke in front of schoolchildren and their parents.

And I wouldn’t care if everyone in the room was over 18.

Time and place and all that.

I probably would have walked out too.

What a shock! /s

I notice the babygirl teenage voice on a fat old bag, "the tilted head of compassion", up-talking at the end of sentences, and a few Hillary-like mannerisms thrown in for emphasis.

I think teachers of children may need term limits.

It’s astonishing, the level of depravity that has worked its way into once-normal, everyday venues. I always liked to compartmentalize these stories, and treat them as anomalies. But it’s become too overwhelming, and in the end, just shows what a vile, putrid sewer America is becoming. It sickens me to the core, seeing what this country is devolving to.

The supposedly clever hostility towards the Church is not at all funny.

The school’s use of sex devices to attract the attention of minors seems criminally abusive.

I remember a ceremony in Carlsbad NM back in 1962 in which a preacher gave a speech. He told two or three of the most off colored jokes that the school officials immediately stopped the program.

How did they do it? They stood up and applauded him Immediately after a really bad joke, getting him off stage and then dismissed the ceremony.

It was a vile joke - and to tell it to young people! Now the F word is acceptable in high school? I graduated in ‘74 and I can only imagine the brouhaha that would have occurred if a STUDENT had used that word in a locker room.

Someone here mentioned taboos. Yes, a society without strong taboos is a lost society.

Today, by sheer coincidence, listening to the radio, I learned the following.
Mind you this is California, but I 'm sure this group aids parents/students nationwide with this kind of exploitation by the pro-sodomy army.

American Center for Law and Justice

They we offering help with a young child taken on a field trip to see questionable subject without the parents' knowledge and consent.

ACLG.org will write a letter to the school district and the school, citing the relevant laws on behalf of the parents.

Worth a try!

“It sickens me to the core, seeing what this country is devolving to.”

Whoooboy, and it’s only going to get worse. Crusading progressive perverts aren’t going to rest on their laurels. You thought abortion and gay marriage were bad? They’re going to try to make Sodom and Gomorrah look like Sunday School.

It’s not a coincidence that it’s a teacher making pedophilia jokes and handing out sex toys, here’s a road map for ya.

Some of the same political maneuvering that was used to legitimize homosexuality in the 70’s is now being applied to pedophilia. Psychiatric declassification, normalization and desensitization in the media, confusion of the moral issues at stake, gradual and incremental dismantling of legal protections, indoctrination of the youth, alliances of convenience among leftist groups, vicious labeling and denouncement of detractors, and finally a new leftist crusade.

Expect to see a general assault on age of consent laws in this nation, using tactics that confuse the morality of the issue - you’ll see the media trying to characterize AOC laws as criminalizing “normal” courtship between adolescents. Expect 60 Minutes or similar to start running stories on any presentable looking, heterosexual, 17-year-old to 19-year-old couples that are in bare technical violation of such statutes. The goal of the media being to “frame” age of consent in the mind of the public as simply an outdated kind of blue law that irrationally condemns “normal” behavior.

The perverts in Hollywood and the news media will do their best to confuse the issue of statutory rape, remember that these folks are more morally supportive of Roman Polanski than they are of us hicks in flyover country. Age of consent laws won’t disappear over night, but expect some of the evil child abusers and their enablers in the media to gradually pry ever-widening holes into our legal protection of youth while aggressively reframing the issue in the public mind.

Expect to see more explicit and implicit sexualization of America’s youth, more than we’re seeing today even. This will be driven not just by active supporters of child exploitation, but also due to the fact that as society is progressively desensitized to perversion artists, writers, and directors must continually push the envelop in order to generate controversy, shock and titillation. Expect to see more child pop stars turned into sex symbols, often with the sleeze-slingers not bothering to wait until the star hits age of majority. Some photographers and artists get a thrill poking a finger in the eye of healthy, normal society, so expect that type of person to take an inordinate amount of pleasure in the act of stepping on society’s last taboos. Expect to see sex ed into kindergarten, often with an eye to both desensitizing the youth and creating ideological or cultural rifts between children and their families.

Expect to see the moral imperatives involved reframed. The left is good at trying to make absolute evil sound like “human rights”, it’s a strategy they’ve milked for all it is worth. Expect to see lots of baseless appeals to moral authority, as such you’ll start hearing a LOT about how ancient Roman and Greek civilizations were built by pederasts, or about how “great” religions were founded by pedophiles. The liberals will also try to take charge of the language involved, moving away from familiar and accurate terms and coming up with weasel-words in order to misdirect.

Likewise expect to see the race-card played, it’s not going to be long until some worthless excuse for a human being writing for Salon will try to claim that evil-white-racist-heterosexual-pedophobic-males are simply manufacturing rage against pedophilia in order to distract from their racist attitudes towards muslims (and yes, expect the word racism to be laughably overused and misapplied even more). Expect to be called a racist and a pedophobe (or maybe philophobe) for pointing out that illegal aliens are engaged in a frighteningly disproportionate number of child abuse cases.

You’re going to see disparate groups united not by common interest in pedophilia, but by common political and personal goals that can be facilitated by taking the side of perversion. This is where a lot of conservatives develop a blind-spot to liberal progressive ideology, it’s often not about the “issue” at the heart of the movement, it’s about the fringe benefits. The entertainment industry is staffed by a frighteningly large proportion of perverts and pedos, but that’s not a political movement. The entertainment industry though has a vested economic interest in the fruits of controversy — as a result you’ll see lots of people in Hollyweird pushing the agenda forward in order to just make a few bucks. Likewise political revolutionaries of a leftist stripe often have no end of perversions, but that’s not a movement either, you can however get a significant number of revolutionaries to carry banners if you frame the issue as a small battle in the struggle against the normative, against the hegemony, against the evil-white-Christian-heterosexual “majority”.

Carrying the theme of intersection of interests further- while pedophiles are naturally inclined to angle into any profession that grants them access to youth, from the Boy Scouts to schools to churches, while the epitome of evil and agents of immense human suffering they’re a vanishingly small minority of no real political clout. They are however going to be helped along by a lot of people in those professions that don’t share the perversion. You’re going to see a lot of teachers who aren’t pedophiles helping the agenda along because it provides some ancillary benefit. I mentioned above sex ed into kindergarten creating ideological and cultural rifts between parents and children, this is precisely the kind of tactic that appeals to radical social reformers of any stripe. You’re going to see a lot of non-pedophile teachers carrying the banner for the cause simply because it’s a useful tool to take your children further away from your control, further away from your ideology and your values; such rationalizations are easy to make when the people making them have no morals to begin with.

Likewise expect to see the liberals try to polarize ethnic minority voting blocks around an “anti-white” agenda rather than a “pro-pedophile” agenda, the same tactics that are getting black and hispanic political groups to support the homosexual agenda despite massive disapproval among those demographics. It doesn’t take a pervert to support a political agenda of perversion, just financial self interest, political self interest, racist self interest, or in some cases merely a deep and abiding hatred of “normal” and “healthy” society.

Scared yet? I am. Evil doesn’t sleep.

The really funny part of the joke is sociological. The humor in the priest’s comment, belies the truth that the children have more to fear from teacher’s sexual advances than Priest’s. And schools are still involved in the coverups.

The media is anti religion, not anti child sex abuse.

In the saner days of America, this would never have happened because we the people had a functioning taboo structure which would shamed these degenerate devils so badly that they would not dare try this evil crap. Now, because democrtas have become so depraved, this is considered high camp, rather than what it is, straight from a sewer pipe.

It’s a paraphrase of an old political joke (that has used Nixon as the one saying “F the women and children”, BillClinton/TedKennedy as the one saying “do you think we have time”, Biden the plagiarist saying “do you think we have time”, and I don’t recall which tattletale politician had the line “did you hear what he just said?”)

This kind of behavior and conduct in the workplace would constitute a hostile work environment that subjects the employer to a major lawsuit. If it is inappropriate for adults in the workplace, it is must certainly inappropriate for minors in the government run school system.

Articles pinged to the Another Reason to Homeschool List will be given the keyword of ARTH. (If I remember. If I forget, please feel free to add it yourself)
